One of Argento's Best
This is tied with SUSPIRIA as Argento's best work. He throws in just about everything INCLUDING the kitchen sink, and it somehow all works together beautifully.
PS: I don't know why one review mentioned zombies. This is a giallo slasher film without any man-eating ghouls in sight!

The camera work and musical score reinforce the feeling of dread and horror in this film to keep you awake at night. I dare you to guess who the killer is. BTW, the original wide screen version of this movie has been removed from the Archive due to "problems with content." Whatever that means.

Dario Argento: THE Master!
No one out does Signore Argento when it comes to suspense and terror! No one!! His stark images, often bordering on the gratuitous, his music-a synthesis of 70s pseudo classical\electronica and his twisting and convoluting plots are mixed with perfection, into a deadly potion that guarantees a "ride" that you surely will not forget in the near future!
Often the term "shocking" is bantered around to describe motion pictures and their experience, but if it is used to describe a work by Dario Argento, you can be assured that this is the real thing!
These movies are a little too much for the timid viewer. However, if the genre appeals to you, you won't be disappointed!
Another one of his masterpieces, that really blew me away, is "Tenebre" (Unsane). About two minutes before the end, just when you thought everything had been figured out, and the credits were about to roll, everything turns inside out!If you enjoyed "Deep Red", don't miss my favorite Argento movie, "Tenebre"!!

Awful cropped version
Where's the original widescreen version? I don't see much point in archiving a poorly transferred, cropped tv 4:3 version of a film that was shot in 2:35 to 1.
